Canon Creative Park
I am super proud to share that I have been recently working with Canon and even more proud that Freddie has joined in too! ❤ There is an amazing website called Canon Creative Park – and it is packed full of paper crafting projects all ready to print and create using your Canon printer and
Surprise Luau Birthday Party – Club Tropicana!
Once I get an idea in my head, it can be all I think about. Especially when it is crafty, has a theme… That’s it, I have an idea, and I am off. Often writing lists, sketching, find ways to get creative. Do you do this? I always have to start NOW. Back in April
Be Your Own Rainbow!
Be your own rainbow.❤🧡💛💚💙 This week is World Autism Awareness Week, and in particular this Good Friday 2nd April… it is World Autism Awareness Day! However, as it is a bank holiday, Freddie’s nursery are marking it a day early, tomorrow on the 1st – with activities and reading and dressing in a ‘spectrum of
Helium Balloon into… CUSHION!
Hmmm, so – how did you spend your weekend? Perhaps a walk, some chores? Time in the garden? If I gave you 100 guesses I am not sure you could have predicted that I was turning a helium balloon into a cushion?! Freddie LOVES balloons, but in particular – this helium balloon. It was left
Rainbow T-Shirt – Cricut Infusible Ink!
Last Saturday we set about a little craft project, and what could be better than Freddie drawing his own rainbow and we magically get this on to his own new t-shirt?! I’ve done several Cricut Infusible Ink* projects now, and it never fails to amaze me just how easy it is, how vibrant the colours
Organisation – Cricut Labelling Heaven!
For someone who loves being organised – a Cricut Maker* is an absolute DREAM! We put this Ikea storage into the playroom earlier this year… No exaggeration, we spent SEVEN hours tidying and arranging these yesterday… adding the coloured vinyl labels on to the draws is the icing on an organised cake! Such a simple thing
The Crafty Lass does… Santa Hats Tutorial!
I know (and I say this a lot to myself, and here on this blog about various things) why would I want to MAKE one, when I could BUY one? Because, I am crafty. Mad too, I think. But also – for the sheer personal satisfaction. To be honest, I was given this beautiful feathers
The Crafty Lass does… Halloween!
I know, I think I’m crazy sometimes too. I could have just bought a costume… But I WANTED to make one. Little Freddie has suddenly become very interested in Mummy’s sewing machine – and thinks it is magic that I can take fabric and turn into something ‘for you’. How perfect then, to make him
I can’t do everything!
People presume as I am ‘The Crafty Lass’, I can do it ALL. Everything – ALL the crafty things. Well… I can’t! I cannot sew a zip. Although I can easily sew on a button, I do not know how to sew a button hole. I think there is a setting on my beloved sewing
The Crafty Lass does… World Book Day!
Sometimes, I get an idea in my head – and that’s it, the idea HAS to be done. It doesn’t matter whether that is going to take me all day and all night (and then all day and all night again) to complete whatever hair brained challenge I have set myself, or whether it is
The best-laid plans of mice and (craftswo)men.
I am pretty sure that 99% of my blog posts start about how busy I have been. But, it’s true…! That – and/or, I am knackered… And, the year flies by… the featured image is over 15 months ago – what?! Anyone who tells you that the self-employment route is easy, is LYING! Yes, I
